HI! It’s great to be back after a lengthy absence from the blogosphere.
I am excited to announce a book giveaway as my first post back here at THE HURLEY EDITION!
I have read and reviewed an advance copy of “Peace At The Edge Of Uncertainty” by Neil Hanson. It’s a beautiful book written in the form of a letter from a middle aged man to his dead father, who passed fifteen years prior to the letter. It is a captivating study in facing death, something we all must face at some point, but most of us rarely think of.
The first person to comment on my review (which will be the next post – not this one) will receive a paperback copy of the book. All other comments left about the book or the review (again – not this post – the next one) will receive an E-Book copy of the book. This is a great contest where everybody wins. My many thanks go out to Nicole at Tribute Books, who organized this blog book tour, and who so kindly asked me to be a part of it.
To set up the book and some information about the author, please read on…..
Neil Hanson’s Bio:
Neil Hanson lives and works in Colorado. Peace at the Edge of Uncertainty is his first book. He blogs actively and writes articles for periodicals. He is an avid outdoorsman, passionate about hunting and fishing. He spends a great deal of time bicycling the roads and trails of Colorado, and backcountry skiing in winter. His passion for gardening spills over into a joint venture with his oldest son, where they operate a landscaping and construction company in Colorado.
In this story told in the first-person form of a letter from a middle-aged man to his deceased father, Hanson invites us to journey with him through the final days of the father’s life, finding a magical transition waiting at the end of that journey. The story weaves end-of-life reality and spiritual questioning into a sensitive and revealing tapestry of Truth and Wisdom. The tapestry is colored with true stories of mystical experiences that inform the spiritual path of the son.
Most of us will face difficult and painful end-of-life decisions with the most important people in our lives. The threads of this aspect of the story are sensitive, and Hanson reveals the struggles and destinations of the son as he wrestles deeply with the journey that he must walk in making these decisions for his dying father.
The Book Review is forthcoming….
